Stayed here on my business trip to Tz. If you're looking for a hotel that meets standards in terms of decor, size, and cleanliness, you've found it! Real value for money! The location offered a quiet family friendly environment. My stay was excellent. Special thanks to Nitya who provided great service. Staff are attentive and helpful.

I was here for a week on business. The bed in my room was incredibly hard, even for someone who likes firm mattresses. I had to put my yoga mat under the sheets to make it sleep-able.
